Statements on Lorenz Rhode:
"Great shit, what a talent!" (Sinden)
"Like A Player" is great. I am a sucker for baroque style arpeggios, and the synth licks are sweet, too. Properly musical and melodic. Super tight production, too." (Fake Blood)
"Telephone Helicopter Applause Gunshot my fave track name of the year so far." (Hudson Mohawke)
"Wicked track." (Jackson&his Computer Band)
"Excellent Release. I love all mixes." (Chloe)
"Great tracks all of them! Love the Sly&Robbie meets Larry Levan & Gwen Guthrie dubbed out percussion with the mazing synth work outs by mr Rhode. Yeah def Roger Troutman meets Hancock! Hard to pick fav tracks as they work on different levels but I'd say Something Hot for getting ready to go out. The great cover of Mylo's Pressure for warm up in the clubs and Like A Player as the peak! Great release!!!" (Punks Jump Up)

Dusseldorf's Lorenz Rhode makes an alluring cocktail of '80s-influenced electro-funk, electrohouse and all-out pop.This is quality electronic dancefloor pop from the outset, and all the various sub-genres Lorenz tackles are injected with a winning quirkiness: He blends Italo retroism with playfully proged-up synth lines to great effect, while he strips the instrumentation right down to a bare-bones sound that's pure, krautrock-inspired synthesizer fun."Imagine Rick James dating Chaka Khan, dancing to Daft Punk and Technotronic, making sweet love to a Stevie Wonder ballad, when suddenly a group of German robots and a Yellow Magic Orchestra come rushing into the hotel suite and....they all decide to go to France instead." That's how Dusseldorf's Lorenz Rhode describes his sound and it's pretty on spot. Following a tasty EP for Compost Records a few years back, Rhode was signed to the excellent Exploited Records label, where he has been busy producing a slew of brilliant cuts, including "Motor Cortex" (single of the month in Mixmag) and the new "Something Hot"-EP, which is absolute dynamite and already gets love from Top-DJS as A-Trak, Sinden, DJ Mehdi, Aeroplane, Hudson Mohawke, Breakbot. "Something Hot" features the voice of Snax (Ex-Captain Comatose & Supportact for Jamie Lidell, Peaches and The Scissor Sisters). Lorenz Rhode's music is equally at home at erm, homre, or on the dancefloor, and has a little something for the head and something for the feet and hips. The man got funk! Watch out for his remixes for Staygold, Moulinex and Strip Steve.
